Polymer Education of Public Universities in Malaysia

25-Sep-2015 | Chin Han Chan, Chee‐Chong Ho, Macromolecular Symposia, 2015

Summary Growth of the Malaysian economy was roughly 6% with an inflation rate of 3.0% and unemployment rate of 2.9% in 2014. The country enjoyed favorable economic growth in recent years. Concurrently, the employment situation of the Malaysian local graduates (skilled personnel) is often ...


Preparation of Stimuli-Responsive Functionalized Latex Nanoparticles: The Effect of Spiropyran Concentration on Size and Photochromic Properties

24-Sep-2015 | Amin Abdollahi; Ali Reza Mahdavian; Hamid Salehi-Mobarakeh, Langmuir, 2015

Incorporation of photochromic compounds to polymer matrix through chemical bonding results in an enhancement of photoactivity and stabilization of optical properties. Here, spiropyran ethyl acrylate monomer (SPEA) was synthesized, and then photochromic particles bearing epoxy functional groups ...


Polymer Encapsulation of Single Clay Platelets by Emulsion Polymerization Approaches, Thermodynamic, and Kinetic Factors

22-Sep-2015 | Alexander M. van Herk, Macromolecular Reaction Engineering, 2015

Polymer encapsulation of clay platelets through (mini)emulsion polymerization can be a versatile method to obtain hybrid nanoparticles with several important applications. However, to achieve actual encapsulation of the single clay platelets inside latex particles is relatively difficult. For ...


Particle Displacement in Aqueous Suspension Arising from Incident Radiant Energy

15-Sep-2015 | Kevin W. Kimura; Gerald H. Pollack, Langmuir, 2015

Colloidal particles in aqueous suspension generally sediment uniformly. By contrast, we found that suspensions of latex microspheres in polystyrene Petri dishes deviated sharply from the expected pattern when various objects were positioned immediately outside those dishes. When small coin-like ...


Influence of Nanoscale Surface Roughness on Colloidal Force Measurements

14-Sep-2015 | Yi Zou; Sunil Jayasuriya; Charles W. Manke; Guangzhao Mao, Langmuir, 2015

Forces between colloidal particles determine the performances of many industrial processes and products. Colloidal force measurements conducted between a colloidal particle AFM probe and particles immobilized on a flat substrate are valuable in selecting appropriate surfactants for colloidal ...


Tailored Chemical Surface Modifications of Different Types of Thermoplastic Materials for Microfluidic Applications

10-Sep-2015 | Jürgen Nagel, Janek Weißpflog, Felix Kroschwald, Gert Heinrich, Macromolecular Materials and Engineering, 2015

The high temperature of the melt during thermoplastic processing is utilized for the surface modification of thermoplastic parts. The approach is demonstrated for polycarbonate as a reactive polymer and polystyrene as a non‐reactive polymer. In case of polycarbonate, a polyamine is coupled to ...


A Novel Alkali and Cosolvent Thickening Mechanism for Latex

08-Sep-2015 | Lang He; Yue Yu; Zhengwei Cai; Di Wang; Xinlin Hong, New Journal of Chemistry, 2015

The work presented here reports the synthesis of recently developed rheology-controlled acrylic latex used in waterborne metallic coatings, which was synthesized with methacrylic acid (MAA), methyl methacrylate (MMA), butyl acrylate (BA), hydroxypropyl methacrylate (HPMA) and divinyl-benzene ...


Improving hydrophobicity of polyurethane by PTFE incorporation

03-Sep-2015 | Ch. Koti Reddy, D. Shailaja, Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2015

ABSTRACT A simple and facile method was established of incorporating polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) on to polyurethane (PU) to improve hydrophobicity of PU by incorporating low levels of fluorine at a molecular level. Nanocomposites were made by preparing PU in the presence of PTFE using ...


Emulsifier‐free cationic latexes based on vinylbenzyl chloride and 2‐(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate with adjusted hydrophilic–hydrophobic properties

14-Aug-2015 | Hayrettin Türk, R. Bengü Karabacak, Murat Erdem, Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 2015

ABSTRACT Functional emulsifier‐free cationic latexes based on styrenic monomer vinylbenzyl chloride (VBC) and acrylic monomer 2‐(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DMA) were successfully prepared with dual quaternary ammonium ions (36–63 mol %) on both monomer moieties in two‐stages. First, ...


Suicidal Smothering by Rubber Latex Gloves and Handkerchief

06-Aug-2015 | Alessia Viero, Giovanni Cecchetto, Rafael Boscolo‐Berto, Guido Viel, Massimo Montisci, Journal of Forensic Sciences, 2015

Abstract Asphyxial deaths are common in forensic practice, being sustained by a variety of mechanisms that cause an oxygen deficiency to the brain. Several classification models have been proposed in the literature, the most recent one being that of the International Network for Forensic ...
